The Rangers will need to take on a big salary to dump Brashear. The acquiring team(budget team/not an upper limit team) saves more money than what they are sending the Rangers.
I got it now(i forgot about that rule).
Well as an Islanders fan I would be more then happy to trade Witt and buyout Brashear. It should be noted Witt's contract and caphit is 3M. If the Islanders can't make a deal with the Rangers, I would look into doing a trade for either of the guys mentioned(Samsonov or Preissing). In the case of Brashear they just might even keep him, we are sorely missing a lil muscle on the 4th line so for what you save when you buy him out it's just easier to keep him then go out and get another goon.
